Medical insurance is a common employee benefit that has been available for a long time. It serves as a safety net for employees in case they fall ill or get injured.

Regulatory Definition

The European Network for Workplace Health Promotion (ENWHP) defines workplace health promotion (WHP) as "the combined efforts of employers, employees and society to improve the health and well-being of people at work".



The health insurance coverage is dependent on the country of operations. Some EU countries provide private medical insurance alongside state-funded health insurance to their employees. State-funded health insurance is tied to social security schemes whereas private medical insurance might be a part of the company’s specific employee benefit package.
